Rest, ye merry caregivers


Letters to the Editor

Joanette Clipson
The holidays are a natural time to enjoy family and get-togethers — sharing festive meals, exchanging gifts and celebrating traditions. But for the 65 million Americans taking care of someone with a life-limiting illness, finding holiday cheer can be difficult.

‘Let them eat cake'


Letters to the Editor

D.W. Tiffee
I see that Chris Smith (Commentary, “Point: What is the endgame?” Nov. 16, Oklahoma Gazette) is using the typical lawyer tactic of sneer and smear when he describes the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators as “bum(s)” who are a “blight on our community.”

Save Elmo!


Letters to the Editor

Stephen N. Kennedy
Regarding “Death to Elmo?” (News, Clifton Adcock, Nov. 16, Gazette), OETA shows documentaries on chimpanzees and gorillas, but I have yet to see a show on OETA about evolution.

WWJD?


Letters to the Editor

Brandon Wertz
In response to “Bah, humbug!” (Chicken-Fried News, Nov. 23, Gazette) in which U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe claimed he would never attend Tulsa’s Holiday Parade of Lights because it nixes the word “Christmas,” I have to say, good for him.

More need to march


Letters to the Editor

Lewis Jones
Every parent-to-be wants to have a healthy baby. But it doesn’t always happen that way. More than half a million babies each year are born too soon here in the United States and, worldwide, that figure jumps to more than 12 million babies.

Talking turkey


Letters to the Editor

Owen Pelroy
While President Obama is pardoning two turkeys for Thanksgiving, every one of us has that same presidential power by choosing a nonviolent Thanksgiving observance that spares a turkey’s life.

Stickin' with the union


Letters to the Editor

Tom Elmore
The back-alley freight transfer line and ramp discussed in “Spur of the moment” (News, Clifton Adcock, Nov 2, Oklahoma Gazette) compares to OKC Union Station’s lamented, 12-track-wide, 8-block-long rail plant and its direct, metro and statewide rail connections only insofar as an outhouse might be compared to the White House.

On the wrong track?


Letters to the Editor

Edwin Kessler
The “Spur of the moment” article in the Nov. 2 Gazette contains an important misleading statement, though concerns expressed in the article for preservation of a rail spur now scheduled for transfer from the state Department of Transportation to Union Pacific are well-justified.

‘No excuse to cheer destruction’


Letters to the Editor

Michael Barlow
The letter by Chris Reiger (“A response to Paul Wesselhoft,” Nov. 9, Gazette) attempts to justify Arab anger against the United States, even to the extreme of cheering while America was attacked on 9/11, by blaming America’s support of Israel.

'Wealth' of information


Letters to the Editor

Shane Woolbright
The commentary on eliminating state income taxes by Jonathan Small (“Creating a boomtown in OKC,” Nov. 2, Oklahoma Gazette) might make better sense if he took the federal tax code into consideration. State income taxes are deductible.

‘Confederacies of municipal dunces’


Letters to the Editor

Richard Hicks
These two news items hit the streets on Nov. 9:

Boundary issues


Letters to the Editor

Rob Abiera
In reading the description of how police officers abused alleged code violations in order to harass and intimidate the owners of Angles back in the early ’80s (James Cooper, “From closet to community, part two,” Nov. 9, Gazette), I couldn’t help but be reminded of recent coverage (News, Clifton Adcock, “Midtown Mayhem,” Sept. 7, Gazette) of the ABLE Commission, whose activities in enforcing Oklahoma’s liquor laws contributed to the shutting down of the inaugural H&8th Night Market in August of this year.

A shot in the dark


Letters to the Editor

Tom Furlong
I find it interesting and instructive that on Page 19 of the Nov. 9 Gazette, Mark Hancock’s photo of the area where homosexuals congregate is shot in near darkness.

Spurned station


Letters to the Editor

Wanda Jo Stapleton
I’m responding to Clifton Adcock’s article “Spur of the moment” in the Nov. 2 Gazette. This article is about the problems regarding “the rail line, extending east of Santa Fe Station, which is slated to be the city’s future intermodal transportation hub.”

‘Shock and applause’


Letters to the Editor

None
It was with great shock and applause that I read Jenny Coon Peterson’s “Not everybody’s ready for some football” (Oct. 12, Gazette).
